I'm probably going to be shot for this :p

My cousin (who's 11) wants to buy a tablet but only has $180 - can anyone suggest a reasonable tablet for that price?

No Idea what these are like, but the stationary warehouse had some of these acers for around that price. http://www.acer.co.nz/ac/en/NZ/content/series/iconiab

That might have been the one she was looking at.

http://www.harveynorman.co.nz/hp-slate-7-2800-tablet.html - bit more expensive, but double the ram and a faster cpu than the acer one.

The acer reviews well enough for the price, and the HP only really get's marked down for the screen which is still ok. I'd expect either to be ok, see if you can get a look at them.

The problem with the HP is that it's out of budget, and with my cousin being 11 it's not a simple manner of waiting for payday...

Does OS matter? How soon is it needed? If he's prepared to wait for Leeming Noel or Norman Harvey to have a sale the HP might drop into his budget. Tech PB have it for $195 if that's 'close enough' to budget.
